After three days of hiking, today’s itinerary will take the edge off for those who need to rest their legs a bit.

Vescovo for a picnic lunch with the deep valley falling away from us. Later return to town for a sightseeing, shopping, or a massage. Lodge in Corvara.
This morning, we take in a beautiful hike near the Santa Croce church above San Cassiano. After taking a chairlift up, we will hike a 7 mile loop trail through and above a dense forest at the base of a massive mountain range. After lunch at the top, we can choose to take the chair lift down, or hike down to our starting point. Afterward, we will have an early dinner, and for those who are interested, we’ll take a drive around the area to visit a few stunning view points before heading back to our resort. Lodge in Corvara.
This morning we will hike one of the most iconic areas in the Dolomites as we begin near the St. Magdalena church in Val di Funes. We hike along a loop trail at the base of these jagged peaks.
